LinkedIn SINGAPORE: A top Japanese producer of eggs will set up Singapore’s fourth egg farm, a move that will eventually boost total domestic production to meet half the country's demand for eggs..The manufacturing site in the northern state of Kedah will carry out final assembly of specific models for the local market, the company and Malaysian officials said.Thank you for your feedback.

From 2026, when it is fully operational, the ISE Food Holdings (IFH) farm will be able to produce 360 million eggs and five million day-old chicks every year.Singapore’s three egg farms currently produce enough to meet about 28 per cent of demand today.The rest is imported from 11 countries.But he added that "it signals our willingness to learn and adapt to specific local market conditions".Under a memorandum of understanding signed with the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) on Friday (Sep 10), IFH will invest S$100 million in local facilities, adopting state-of-the-art technology and environmentally sustainable practices in areas ranging from remote monitoring of animal health, advanced climatic control, to odour and waste management.This is expected to create jobs and introduce niche processes beneficial in the long term for Singapore’s nascent agricultural industry.While genetics can predispose some people to cardiovascular problems, lifestyle choices are a significant contributor to both heart disease and heart disease mortality.

IFH will develop an egg layer farm, a day-old chick hatchery, a parent stock pullet farm, and a parent stock layer farm in Singapore.Malaysia has a fast-growing middle class and has enjoyed robust growth rates in recent years, although a serious coronavirus outbreak has hit the economy hard.This will make the IFH farm the first in Singapore to have the full ecosystem of egg production, from the initial imports of day-old chicks that will eventually become the parents of other day-old chicks that lay eggs for consumption.An illustration of the bird’s-eye view of IFH’s future Egg Layer Farm.(Image: Big Dutchman) This strengthens production resilience during a time when the COVID-19 pandemic has put pressure on supply chains, and comes as Singapore pushes ahead with its target of producing , known as the '30 by 30' vision.Singapore’s current egg farms only import the day-old chicks that lay eggs for consumption.But if buyers line up itching to make deals, are there enough movies to go around? This year’s TIFF lineup of close to 200 films in the Official Selection is not significantly slimmed down as it was for 2020 when just 50 features screened, but many of the biggest gala presentations are arri an hour ago.

SFA will award four farm plots of about 13 ha in total on 30-year leases to IFH at market value.The farms will be in Tuas, Sungei Tengah and Lim Chu Kang.Construction on the facilities is expected to start from 2022, and the farms will begin operating in phases from 2024 to 2026.Minister for Sustainability and the Environment Grace Fu said in a statement that IFH’s operations in Singapore will create good jobs for Singaporeans in the agri-food and sustainability sectors, and raise the capability and resilience of Singapore’s local egg industry.“This will support us in our push towards strengthening Singapore’s overall food security in a productive, climate-resilient and sustainable manner,” she added.
